Lecture notes



Option 1: a literature survey on one of the topics in the course syllabus not covered in class. The survey should be complete, including motivation, classical and recent solution approaches, their comparison, open problems, etc.

Option 2: an application of supply chain methods to solve a new problem (e.g., using dataset found on the Internet, from open-data initiatives, government agencies, etc.). Here, you will motivate the problem, model it, propose a solution approach, and analyse this solution.

Whether you choose option 1 or 2, you will have to produce a concise report (neither too short nor too long), and give a presentation on it.
